HD FS 239 Adolescent Development (3)
(GS)

(BA) This course meets the Bachelor of Arts degree requirements.

Only in early infancy do minds, bodies, and abilities change as radically as they do during the teenage years. HD FS 239 is an introductory course that explores the developmental processes that shape our lives between puberty and the end of college. Although each life unfolds in its own unique pattern, we will explore the ways biological, psychological, and sociological influences systematically combine to shape its course. This class will help to develop an understanding of the concepts, methods, and research findings central to the study of adolescent development.
